Besides the updates to the iPad line, the company is also expected to show off new iMacs computers and a full launch of OS X Yosemite.
The new event will be more "laid back" than last month's iPhone release event, say the sources - meaning most likely no U2 performance this time around.
There are not likely to be any "game-changing" announcements, but a new Retina iPad Mini is expected with Touch ID, and a gold color is expected to be added to the iPad Air line, which will somehow get even thinner.
Apple needs to reverse the trend the iPad has been facing, which is stagnating sales. Last quarter, sales actually fell 9 percent year-over-year.
